Cycle of Life

An apple.
Crunch
Crunch
Crunch
Teeth break
The thick bitter skin
The juice oozes
And trickles down my chin
Crunch
Crunch
Crunch
Around and
Around I go
Till only a thin
Spindly
Core is left
To brown
To rot
The dark brown seeds
Wedged in the center
Then it is carelessly
Thrown onto the ground

Next spring
A tree.
